Ranger Crosby's Story...
Ranger Crosby, a one-year-old, long and lean, agile, playful, fun, sweet and gentle spotted tabby cat who has tested positive for the feline leukemia virus is looking for a loving guardian.

This smart and resourceful cat popped out from under a car and approached a woman walking a dog; that was around Halloween 2016.

The cat had excellent judgment, as the woman was not only a cat lover, but also a veterinarian.

She ran home with her dog to grab a cat carrier. She gathered up the scruffy cat and brought him home with her. He was covered with fleas and his paw pads were raw from his travels. He had a cracked canine tooth, and wasn’t neutered or micro-chipped. He ate and ate and ate … only stopping momentarily to accept some cuddles and affection. Sadly, he also tested positive for FeLV.

He has been a wonderful houseguest, and loves to get up high to look down on his surroundings. He now needs to find a home of his own without other cats, or with cat-friendly dogs. The virus is not transmittable to humans or dogs.

Ranger Crosby has grown from seven to 11 pounds in just a few months. He is now neutered, his cracked tooth has been extracted, his paws have healed and he is vaccinated and micro-chipped. He is a healthy, happy fellow being fostered in Chicago’s lakeview neighborhood. If you’d like to meet and possibly adopt Ranger Crosby, please contact Suma at suma@uwalumni.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ranger Crosby, a Chicago Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
